Overview of Tightly Coupled Integration

Tightly Coupled Integration provides a single point of user management from the Cisco WebEx Messenger Administration Tool. Organization Administrators can create Cisco WebEx Messenger accounts with or without enabling the Cisco WebEx Meeting application service for such accounts. Organization Administrators can access the Cisco WebEx Meeting application administration tool from the Cisco WebEx Messenger Administration Tool to perform administration functions specific to Cisco WebEx Meeting application accounts.

Tightly Coupled Integration provides significant value for customers who have not integrated with the Enterprise Single sign-on infrastructure. Customers who have integrated with the Enterprise Single sign-on infrastructure use Enterprise Identity Management system as their primary means of user management. Loosely Coupled Integration is recommended for such customers.

Three typical scenarios are available for enabling a Tightly Coupled Integration for an enterprise as shown in the following table.
